hi ive had this fone for 6 months and the keys havnt cracked yet! if u are thinking on getting this fone do it! i assure you by now the key problem has been rectified by now! i am a satisfied user of this phone and dont be afraid to get it!
Hey guys, please let me know where i can get good flash themes for this phone thanks, gr8 fone btw! ;):D
I got my s500i for christmas with 1yr warranty with Bmobile and in 3weeks 3 keys cracked, I really love this phone and wen i took it bac to Bmobile the CSR told me warranty is for manufactor purpose only and she voided my warranty "News Flash It's Ah Manufactor Problem" I work in ah bmobile store so i can get my phone change, but wat about normal customers? Come on Sony Ericsson Phones manufacturers you'll can do better dan dat considering its ah multy billionair company make ah stronger keypad
Does anyone know or can anyone who has it tell
me if it has the lights at the side like
the w580 does????
Great lookin phone but no flash or auto focus
like my w610i?!!i love these features!!
It's a good phone but I really don't think the stand by battery life is 370 hours (15 days) as it says on the page. My phone dies on me after a day. It's a great phone, and no it's not a woman's phone.
this is the phone that cracks. it is supposed to crack. all round the world, the phone has to crack sometime, at the most it will have to crack in a year
I have one question....this is a phone for women? :-s I want to buy it....but it looks like a women phone
i buy my s500 on 16122007 but AP- never know..u know wat..i really like its feature..its great..like the light,the design..small..but then i realize that the key pad i crack after i'm using it for only 3 days!!i'm so upset and u know wat i send to the place that i buy the phone,they say no warranty for the keypad..its nonsence..
i try to send the phone to chg the keypad at sony shop,its rm80 ifu want to chg..waaa
i just love this phone and want it to ,look perfect..one more thing,the screen cover is not center..weird eh...
Sony admitted that there are problems with the keypads. Just return to youre dealer and send it off to repair. In Holland they make it under gurantee, and till now the phones I sende for repair (Im a dealer) came back with repaired keypads and so far no one came back again cause they broke again.
Further I think its a nice (but women) phone. Nice features, nice design, nice camera.
Overall (not thinking about breaking keypads) a nice and good phone!
i was just wondering why we shouldnt buy the black colour according to a comment posted.
i want to get this phone but im starting to change my mind from all these comments about cracking keys...i also read this other comment about getting an original phone not an AP how do we no the difference? do we ask the dealers or what? -
it is a nice phone overall, although the key feature is the design. had the phone for about 5-6 months and the 4 % 6 keys broke, but still working...all together, i'm happy with it ...
I've had mine since November 07. I absolutely love it, except for the fact that all my keys are now cracked, except for the 5 key. Im hoping that once they come out with the new models, that I can try to do a switcheroo. I bought my phone off of myworldphone.com. I haven't really had any problems with it. I even dropped it, the face plate fell off, then i clipped it back on - like brand new! Haha. Well, not brand new, but it didn't crack or anything. Anyway, it's a pretty sturdy phone like most sony ericssons - it's no iphone or rokrE6 (which I was considering before i got this phone). Anyway, if you decide to get it, goodluck and enjoy the beauty, sleekness, and fun features!
The looks and design of this phone is undeniably cool and sleek. The rest of the functions are quite ok, but it sucked real hard on the part the keys tend to crack (regardless AP or Original,mine is an Original btw).
It's even more upsetting when you send it for repair and it takes about 2 weeks ++ and AGAIN it cracks, it seems they said by Jan 2008 they will replace the cracked ones with "new batch" of keys that will NOT crack, I'm still looking forward to changing mine, and yeah, the phone hangs once in a while (screen goes black all of a sudden, and returns to normal). The slider seems ok, but the cam, with no flash it does not much good, but the picture quality is great. It has no FM radio, another big upset. Overall rating: Try to look into other phone models, but if you want to just go for sexy looks, this is the sexiest so far... ('',)
tis phone really good in style but not quality....no fm radio ..ar yoooo... i trade-in d next day i brought it..
I have had this phone for about 5 months and its such a cool phone. I love the lights down the side and how they change with the theme etc It looks so sexy and its different from a boring plain black or silver phone.
No matter how much i love this phone it does have some down sides. The keys cracked after two months. I sent it to Sony Ericsson direct to have them replaced under warantee but that takes two weeks which is annoying and they said it wouldnt happen again as they have solved the problem but low and behold mine have cracked again. I only text about 500 per month and keep it in a protective case and work in an office so no dirt or damage happens. Also the phone sometimes freezes or hangs and the phone slider bit feels very loose and cheaply built. i love sony ericssons but think the k800, k810, w880, w910, k850, w660 are all better built. I now have to send mine off for repair again and then look forward to it hopefully lasting til my upgrade - aaahhhh
really good phone..but some of my friends facing the keypad prob..they said the keypad cracked.. but i dun hv this prob..
